Figures don't lie, but liars sure can figure...

WaPo/ABC Poll Inaccurate, Unreliable

it appears that the Post and ABC conducted a poll for a specific result, trying to drive the story they want to write. Their results differ wildly from other polling from more reliable samples, which show Bush ahead by a thin margin (Pew) or more substantial (the somewhat-suspect Harris Poll). Once again, we have news organizations more interested in making the news up rather than reporting reality.
